Creepy Crudités

 

Halloween crudites

We love this creative way to celebrate the healthy tastes of Halloween. Who would have thought we’d be recommending a recipe of brains, fingers, eyeballs and blood!
Yet as grossed as you may be, these appetizers are refreshingly delicious. Enjoy in confidence!

Here are the simple steps to follow:

Cucumber Eyeballs:

Cucumber, sliced in big chunks, patted dry
Green olive, sliced
Tofutti cream cheese
natural red food coloring (made from beets)
toothpick

MAKE:

Apply a glob of cream cheese in the middle of the cucumber and stick the olive on top.
With a toothpick, carefully dip into food coloring to make lines that look like veins on the eyeballs.

Carrot Fingers:

1 bag baby carrots
small cutting knife

MAKE:

Carefully use the knife to cut out 3 lines in the middle of the “finger” for knuckles and carve out a fingernail at the thinnest point of the carrot.

Cauliflower Brains

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets, patted dry
natural red food coloring (beet-based)
toothpick

MAKE:

Using the toothpick, dip in coloring make squiggly lines for the brains.

TOMBSTONE CHIPS:

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

1 bag corn tortillas
vegetable oil

MAKE:

If you have a tombstone cookie cutter, this will come in handy. I didn’t so I just hand carved out one and used it as my base.
Cut out tombstones from the tortillas.
Heat oil in skillet on medium heat until hot. Place tortillas, batches at a time, into skillet and cook for 5 minutes, or until crispy. Drain oil on a paper towel.
Place all your ingredients on a platter with a salsa-filled skull bowl and enjoy!
